Hard covered book titled RESTORING OLD BUILDINGS FOR CONTEMPORARY USES An American Sourcebook for Architects and Preservationists by William C. Shopsin, 1989, 208 pages, 180 illustrations. ISBN 0823074250
Architects are called on to make the decisions about whether and how to save, use or reuse old buildings - from ordinary houses to extraordinary white elephants, from old fashioned commercial buildings to mills and churches. Yet, ironically, only a minority of architects and designers have had any formal training in preservation or restoration work. This book is a first course on preservation for architects and designers and a basic primer on architecture for preservationists. It is also a sourcebook for pragmatic information for enlightened homeowners and preservation activists.
Some of the topics include:
